The collection consists of James Martin's personal testimony videotape, 'In My Opinion... Southern Baptists' and two related letters. One is from Martin to his classmates from the Class of 1962, Tupelo High School 'and a few others,' explaining that he made the video because he was denied a chance to speak the truth about prejudice against gays and lesbians at his reunion. The other is from Reverend Jimmy Porter of the First Baptist Church in McComb, Mississippi, telling Martin he didn't view his videotape and cannot accept his views.
